In response to Jordan's promotion of the video from Matthew Vines, I also recommend that people view feedback from others about that video. Google lists numerous critiques on that one-sided video. Last week, the Christian Post examined the perspectives of the wider Christian community here: http://www.christianpost.com/news/theologians-find-vines-homosexuality-is-not-a-sin-thesis-not-persuasive-82341/

I am very disappointed in Colin Craig's stance on gay marriage. As a gay christian myself (And yes you can be gay and follow Jesus - he did, after all, die for ALL of us which is pretty all inclusive right there), for many years I felt like an alien in church.I felt like I wasn't accepted not only by society, but the very people in my church who were supposed to be supportive and empathetic towards me. I found this very Unchristian-like of them.After coming to terms with my sexuality after almost 10 years, I then began researching and delving into the 6 clobber passages in the bible that some people use against LGBT people. Wow. I have learned A LOT.I won't bore you guys with what I have found because I could write pages on it all, but these resources are what I have found to be eye opening and very useful to me personally:"Unchristian" by David Kinnaman (This book talks about the christian faith being hypocritical among other things. If you are a christian that is open to truth, you would agree that we're not all perfect, we're all sinners, and we are hypocrites. Amazing book)"The Children Are Free" by Rev. Jeff Miner and John Tyler Connoley (Book on reexamining the biblical evidence on same-sex relationships. It's a must have book)Matthew Vines on the bible and homosexuality:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezQjNJUSraYRob Buckingham on Real Christianity (Parts 1-5):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DPfql9A_vchttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIez3WErnfwhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M62T4czN8SYhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iv7EwO4f6G8http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slfprUmzNVIIs being gay a choice?:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EI1_jzPEcwUI really hope that one day Colin Craig can see the truth in that people's hatred, intolerance and ignorance does not change someones sexuality. NOTHING does.I hope Louisa Wall's Bill is passed in all three stages not only for equality, but for freedom and love as well.
